"putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing. i don't want to sound too much like a chauvinist." "you have to be wealthy in order to be great. i'm sorry to say it." "he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured."
6:14 am
folks in citrus will have to wait >>russell: folks in citrus have to wait before they see any help from fema. county officials say it's a process. in citrus, 1,800 structures suffered some kind of damage from hermine. initial damage assessment roughly $53 million. crews ask that all debris be placed on the curb but avoid blocking fire hydrants, separate them in categories.and- can you imagine having to deal with this?
6:15 am
appliances and vegetation like tree limbs. >>laura: this is just the beginning. now comes insurance, now comes paperwork. >>russell: and it's a process. >>dave: it is. a hint of fall to the north? 68 degrees in ocala. i like that. but that's not coming down here. our temps have been pretty consistent since the storm went away. we've been back to the lower 90s but i think the most important thing for us is that the chances have dropped down to a level that gives us a chance to get rid of some more of that standing water which is good. 71 the current temperature in brooksville. lakeland at 73. frost proof, sebring, you're both at 74. 76 to 78 degrees from sarasota to st. petersburg. dew points in the 7 0z. further north you go from ocala to gainesville and going toward jacksonville, it is an absolutely lovely morning up in
6:16 am
so yeah, we're getting there. a few more weeks, a few more weeks and we'll start to turn the tide on these temperatures. solid northeast winds running five to 12 miles an hour. between that and the drier air that we have just kind of sitting in the mid levels of the atmosphere, the rain chances, tampa, st. petersburg to the north, even including polk county so going east around 20%, there is more moisture in the atmosphere further south so we'll put sarasa on the edge of about a 30% rain chance but once you get down to fort myers, for instance, the rain chances go up to 50%. so it's like 20% and then 30%, 40%, 50% as you go further south. by the weekend, some of that moisture will start to get pulled back to the north and just allow for more of these afternoon thunderstorms. but nothing out of the ordinary. temperatures stay pretty close to normal and the rain chances head back there for the weekend as well.
6:17 am
it made its second landfall, okay. went through baja and now mainland mexico and the only reason i'm showing this to you is over the next couple days, you're likely to see flooding video out of arizona. this is a big issue for folks. as this tropical system moves north and into the desert southwest, not that -- they can't handle the kind of rainfall that we can get around here. they're going to get a lot of it so i think you're goi t arizona from this tropical system over the next couple of days. so in the atlantic, things are relatively quiet. of course, hermine is gone so that's good finally. 92 for a high temperature with the sunrise a little less than an hour. we'll get some beautiful camera shots soon as we get the light of the day. clear skies, mild, muggy tonight, no big deal, 75 the overnight low. normal low is 76 and then
6:18 am
thursday with a 20% rain chance continuing tomorrow and your high which is going to be around 92 degrees. a light to moderate chop boating today with seas around two feet and temperatures running close to normal. 90 to 92. rain chances sneak up a little bit by the weekend. they'll run around 40%. >>vanessa: looks a little slow here on the exit ramp off i-4. this is hillsborough where we have a crash reported lane blockage. hard to tell but at least one lane is passing. the flashing lights but it is moving slower and it is starting to stack up on the ramp itself. we haven't seen really any impacts quite yet to the interstate as far as slowdown. if you have to take the hillsborough exit ramp and give yourself a few extra minutes. >>laura: a record setting american and two russians landed safely on earth after a six-month stay on the
6:19 am
record set by scott kelly. world record is still held by a russian two spent 876 days in space. in fact, 13 russians have more time in space than williams. not to negate the accomplishment. >>russell: no. >>laura: space station's next crew is already on deck. >>russell: they're in the final stages of preps before their launch later this month. they will perform a range of scientific experiments aboard the statn. in orbit. during that time, they'll need supplies. space x, one of the station's main suppliers. one of the company's rockets exploded during routine test. he feels good about the mission. >> so it's a little premature to project we're going to have issues logistically getting things to the space station. we do have other vehicles that we can move, payloads and experiments around if there are some issues with the space x,
6:20 am
space station. >>russell: they're scheduled to depart september 23 and will not be back until late february. >>laura: it's hard to believe school for a lot of kids in other states. >>russell: coming up, one kid is very excited for his new school year and one that's really kind of not. and how would you like to take this for a spin? this could be the scariest amusement park ride -- dave? >>dave: oh, no, no, no. negative. in hot apparently, people think i'm too perky. so now i'm not being perky, telling you that drivers that switch to progressive save an average of $548! whoo!

good morning, i'm laura moody. and i'm russell >>laura: good morning. i'm laura moody. >>russell: and i'm russell rhodes. take a look now at dave for a look at the forecast. kind of nice this morning. >>dave: it is and i'll tell you, over the next three weeks, four weeks, it will start to get nicer and nicer. we're getting past that point. it's still warm and muggy outside. great start to the day overlooking the lakeland net camera at this hour. our temperatures are running low to mid 70s inland. we've got mid to upper 70 as long the coast and the forecast keeps us in the lower 90s the next couple of days and holds the rain chances to around 20%. don't get me wrong. by the weekend, moisture levels ride back in and so do the rain chances and we'll talk more
6:31 am
>>vanessa: all right. thanks, dave. see you then. we're watching this crash off the i-4 westbound ramp. this is the ramp to hillsborough as we told you before, lane blockage here, traffic is passing from what we can tell, at least one lane but now we're starting to see impacts to the westbound travel lanes of i-4. just looking slightly under speed with the underspeed conditions southbound of 75 approaching i-4. it's starting to the backed up as that way, 75 to 275, nine minutes is that drive westbound i-4 and then we'll just check and see how the other majors are working. eight minutes southbound 75, bruce b downs to i-4 and 13 minutes over the howard frankland bridge heading to i-4. if you're in the area of concern, exit ramp off i-4, just give yourself a few extra minutes as well as travelling along the interstate itself between 75 and hillsborough. >>laura: in a little more than

arrive at the scene of a deadly helicopter crash in central florida. three people died when an aircraft went down in a remote area along the space coast yesterday. police found an older model military style helicopter on the flames. fully engulfed in - witnesses reported seeing it flying low just before it went down. >>russell: florida businessman who faked his own death to defraud insurance companies pleaded guilty. he faces up to 50 years in prison. prosecutors agreed t he owned a jacksonville furniture business and concocted a story he had mad cow disease and was traveling to venezuela for treatment. he went there to get a fake death certificate. he was arrested last year while applying for a passport in other person's name. >>laura: it is 6:32 now and if the rain and flooding were not bad enough, criminals are now targeting people in the areas hit hardest by hermine. >>russell: there's a new phone
6:33 am
alcides segui is at the pasco county sheriff's office? is that where you are? >>reporter: no. elfers parkway in pasco county. we're talking about the pasco county sheriff's office. on their facebook page, they're alerting residents here in the county not to give out personal information or money to people you're not 100% sure if they're with the insurance company or fema. i want to show you how bad it is out he flooded out here, still plenty of standing water. this is a residential road that goes into many homes out there and so residents are not only having to deal with the flooded roadways, they're also having to deal with water damage in their homes and again, now the pasco county sheriff's office is urging folks to not give out your personal information without being 100% sure the person you are speaking with is either with your insurance company or with fema.
6:34 am
apparently, according to the pasco county sheriff's office, there are plenty of phone scams. callers are claiming to be from fema and demanding money for the storm damage or demanding money to file a claim. obviously fema does not operate that way. florida cfo jeff atwaters' office is investigating allegations of fraud. reports suggest that people are posing as federal officials and they're demanding 150 bucks, to help residents fill out the fema claims. so again, state, local officials want to remind you, don't give out any personal information or money without verifying the identity of the person who is asking for it. government officials carry official identification as to insurance company representatives. if they do not have that, either walk away or just hang up the phone. these scammers are also asking for personal information like
6:35 am
again, don't give that away, either. don't be a victim. do the research first and again, it's almost a week since hurricane hermine pounded the state of florida. we saw some of that damage here in pasco, hernando and citrus county and even now, you can see there's plenty of flooded streets and folks are waking up this morning still picking up pieces from that storm. we'll continue talking about the phone scams and how people are trying to take advantage of others, even when they're having to deal with all of this throughout "good day." back to you. >>russell: you remember that scene in the matrix where reeves plugs into a computer and learns kung fu? we're not there yet but some are getting close. >>laura: virtual reality could help train the next generation of law enforcement.
6:36 am
enforcement is training right now at the seminole state college center for public safety. >> when we began, we would have done it strictly for food and a place to stay. that's how much we enjoyed it. >>reporter: associate lee was a cop more than 30 years. he knows students face is likely to look much different because of technology. >> what we look at today will be so advanced, it will some day be obsolete. >> the only radio we had was the one inside the car. when you were away from the car, you didn't have any communication. >>reporter: that's changing rapidly. >> i have to pull my taser. >>reporter: this is the first public demonstration of a new

6:38 am
advances in wi-fi availability and speed are still needed but it's heavy stuff, stuff that people like jim lee, who are training our future law enforcement officers, think will make a real difference. >> it cuts the distance from miles to zero and gives them an accurate, real-time events as they transpire. >>laura: that was tom johnson reporting. >>russell: stick around. dave's next. plus they boldly went where no one had gone before. all household names thanks to the voyages of the starship enterprise. this morning the cast looks back.

6:41 am
>>dave: good wednesday morning and a beautiful one at that. you know, we came off our 92-degree high temperature by getting back down to the mid 70s which is where many of us are now. and clear skies.
6:42 am
brookdale bayshore camera. we're sitting at 70 degrees in crystal river. these are hourly observations coming from different areas. i'll bet you get into the rural areas and the way city center and there's probably a few spots in the 60s this morning. pretty comfy start. a little warm along the coast because the water temperatures are still in the mid 80s. love panama city, 67. gainesville at 64 degrees this morning. jacksonville at 63 so it's like a big wow for those temperatures up there. go down to the south florida, and it's still in the upper 70s to low 80s. northeast winds to start so you would think that we would have a big thunderstorm in the afternoon but there was a difference yesterday in the atmosphere and you could see it. you could feel it. it wasn't quite as humid and we have a lot of drier air aloft. well, for many of us, that drier
6:43 am
morning. not at the surface but mid levels of the atmosphere. you'll get the puffy, cumulus clouds to develop, but they don't have enough umph to produce the thunderstorms we would typically get. further south, you notice how there's a little more moisture down in miami and fort myers and naples and those spots, they'll have a little higher rain chance so we're separating the state. tampa north, running rain chances today. closer to 40% as you get closer and closer to the fort myers area. everywhere else seems to be relatively quiet. by the way, this is what's left of hermine. the mid level spin still hanging around, generating a lot of surf in the northeast but tropical storm warnings, long cancelled on that one, which is good. 92 degrees for a high temperature for today. it will be hot. but the rain chances keep down
6:44 am
oh, you know, the rain chances but with all the rain we've had, we can squeeze out two or three more days where it's relatively quiet. you get some standing water out here and then we'll get back to saturday, sunday, monday and tuesday. more normal rain chances for september. and that being around 40% for weekend into early next week. vanessa? >>vanessa: thanks, dave. we have sky fox checking out the crash on i-4 still causing trouble here. westbound at the exit ramp to hillsborough avenue. still seeingus passing. it will be on the right-hand side and as we told you before, delays building not only on the exit ramp but also you can see here on the interstate south. looks like it's slightly under speed at 52 miles an hour. also just note while we're here checking it out, 75 southbound starting to slow down as you approach i-4 itself. we do have a new crash reported out of pinellas county. ulmerton road at 34th street north, lane blockages reported. most of our delays we're seeing reported eastbound here on this
6:45 am
data. however, showing some westbound delays as well. so just a couple of extra minutes out the door. all right. it's about to switch over to 6:45. let's get over to charley. welcome back. >>charley: thank you very much. first of all, i have to reference the dogs behind me because i know that's all you'll be looking at when i'm talking to you. yes, yes, beautiful, fun dogs on "good day" this morning. i'll explain why and where in just a second but was i yesterday? >>vanessa: where were you? >>charley: new york city. i had the craziest, fastest trip to new york city ever. like it was weird. i was there less than 24 hours. i flew up on labor day in the afternoon and came home last night but feels like i was gone a week. it's weird how travelling makes -- i feel like somehow i time travelled. >>vanessa: like you spent three days or something. >>charley: it's weird. but i went up there to meet this
6:46 am
when harry met charley. that's the name of the new movie. harry connick, junior. by the way, don't ever take a picture. you'll never look uglier or fatter. >>vanessa: you look like peas in a pod. you both look dapper. >>charley: harry connick, junior is the one on the right. thank you, vanessa. >>vanessa: seriously, you both look very handsome together. get you all dressed up. >>charle >>vanessa: you've got your sunday best on. >>charley: he has a brand new daytime show and it starts monday here, right here on fox 13. it will be on at 2:00 in the afternoon. i hope -- look. he could not have been a nicer, more genuine person and i really am rooting for him. he's so likable and i'll tell you, he's deserving of that
6:47 am
